Reality Check India

GOM – what about the composition ?

Posted in Uncategorized by realitycheck on May 19, 2006

"Increase the number of seats in the existing institutions and also create new institutions. Financial implications will be worked out," Mukherjee said after the meeting of the GoM which was also attended by HRD Minister Arjun Singh, Finance Minister P Chidambaram and Health Minister Anbumani Ramadoss.

So the GoM consists of P. Chidambaram, A. Ramadoss, Arjun Singh, P. Mukerjee. Of this group two are from Tamilnadu – which flagrantly violates the Mandal commission by not excluding the creamy layer. In addition, Anbumanis father founded a entirely new group (not mentioned in Mandal) called Most Backward Class. P. Chidambaram has supported this move from day one, almost 95% of his caste is covered by reservation and his wifes too.

Wait and watch as these Dravidian politicians pull the great Dravidian quota move on unsuspecting north , south , east and west indians.

End note :  To all TV Anchors, why dont you ask these two stalwarts point blank why TN does not exclude the creamy layer. In what way are OBCs from TN special compared to OBCs from Karnataka, UP, Andhra, Kerala or anywhere else.

Why must OBCs in Kerala run from pillar to post seeking non-creamy layer certificate while TN can just ignore the whole thing and smile at the center and supreme court.

    All i want to ask is that if we want to upbring the underprivilegded people, then why do we need reservations instead of ground-breaking volatile policies which are executed? if the govt. wants to prove that they are really working towards the progress of our nation, should they not give us lesser reasons to discriminate? Or why not jus feed the underdogs with pre-allocated jobs as soon as their names are registered with the MCD at their tme of birth?! this reservation policy really sucks and i don’t understand how increasing the number of seats will help in any way when the percentage is a factor…

    RealityCheck,

    What are your views on the constitutionality of a GoM consisting of the defense, health and HRD ministers deciding on the fate of the quota? Isn’t this a much more fundamental question to be decided by no less than PM and Chief Justice etc.? Essentially it is about adopting a new philosophy, communism. This requires a whole rewrite of the constitution.

    @Raymond: The way it will unravel is as follows:

    Out of 100 seats, 22.5 goes to SC/ST, leaving 77.5 for G. Now, when the 27 seats will be given away to OBCs, the Gs will be left with 50.5. First they will add 27 seats. But that increases the seats to 127. This will cause a serious issue since now all these groups will cry wolf because they are getting less than the constitutionally allotted percentage of seats. So the exercise will continue ad infinitum. At present students in premier institutes get single occupancy rooms. Come next year, there will be lines in front of the toilets. Instead of studying, the students will have to figure out ways for basic day-to-day survival.
